My City Is Better Than Yours
Here's an interesting article: it says Minneapolis is one of the top five cities in which to accrue wealth. At the rock bottom of the list? New York, New York. It sounded so
I sent the article to one of my college friends who currently lives there. I've been waging a half-hearted battle since college to get him to move out here, or at least leave that ridiculous city behind him. He's actually flying out here for my birthday, but while he's here he wants me to take him to a gay club and introduce him to the Minneapolis gay scene. Normally I don't like gay clubs. The couple times I've been in gay clubs I've found the queers to be a little condescending. They somehow think they're inherently more fabulous than us normals, just by being more flamboyant. I don't think so. That's like a guy in a yellow Hummer pulling up beside me and saying, "Dude, my car is so much better than your Audi." If by "better" you mean "more ostentatious and less classy," then yes, on that point I concede the high ground.
HOWEVER, if taking him to a gay club will convince my friend to move here, or at least that there's some semblance of gay life out here on Mars, then I'm willing to suck it up (wait, what?). The problem I have now is, I don't know where any of the gay clubs are. I think I stumbled past one once when I was drunk and disorderly downtown. I actually ran into one of my gay classmates from law school yesterday, but someone I had trouble working into the conversation, "Hey! You're gay! What would be a good club to take my out-of-town friend to?"
Does anyone know a "hot" (I believe that's the appropriate adjective) gay bar in Minneapolis? It's not for me; it's for this guy I know...
